boehner is seeing he rode in on the tea party wave in 2010 and now there is a full scale revolt. i think it's pretty unlikely of anybody that's going to challenge him successfully. but, again, i think in spirit, it's hard to see that he is wielding much authority and much leadership with that caucus. you have cantor on the one hand presiding, really, over a sort of separate caucus in the tea party. there had been reports, initially, that he was backing boehner and backing some of the moves he was making on the fiscal cliff. but then he comes out to vote against this bill, really solidifying, i think, his role as maybe a speaker in wading or certainly of head of the tea party kau cuss. >> now, congresswoman, the speaker's spokesman is say, confidently, that he'll be reelected. but there has been a lot of damage to the republican brand.
